Soft top not laying flat when down

I put my soft top down, but as you can see from the photos, it doesn't lay very flat, is there a way to fix this, or am i putting it down incorrectly. I feel like it should lay lower than what it is.

I understand it's not going to lay completely flat, i'm just thinking it's sticking up alot more than it should

You might be able to get it to lay a little bit flatter than that but probably not much. Carefully folding it helps. I thought mine had some elastic straps that would sort of help pull it down too but its been a while since I had my soft top on the jeep.

When you do the sunrider part of the fold, you need to pull the material towards the back of the Jeep. Look on youtube...there are several videos.

If you get that first part right, it will help with the top laying flatter.

You have the "W" fold wrong when folding the Sunrider portion back. Top pic is wrong, bottom pic is correct.

Wait, shouldn't the Sunrider sliders be in the locked position when lowering the entire top? I do the W fold when using the Sunrider, but never do that when lowering the whole thing.

I never use the Sunrider feature, but when folding the top all the way back I fold the "W" as pictured then drop the top back so it's neatly stowed.

^Same. It just looks like youre folding it sloppily. No big deal, but to answer your question it CAN sit lower
